Obama´s Smug America
American Spectator, by George Neumayr

Original Article

By every objective measure, America is in decline. But liberals insist that it is moving "forward." The modern philosophy of progress is Darwinian, holding that the latest development, whether of a country or a species, is always the best one. Mutations are assumed to be perfective, not destructive. Obama is the one "we have been waiting for," chanted his followers in 2008. They identified him as the agent of the final phase in liberalism´s revolution. In 2012, Obama drew upon this revolutionary hope again, coining "forward" as his campaign slogan. The rhetoric was slightly more subdued --

Darwinianism also admits the possibility of extinction.

FEMA´s in charge of Darwinism in NY and NJ right now.

Christie fawned all over Obama,helping him win the election,ostensibly to secure federal funds. Guess what those funds aren´t coming so there´s going to have to be a tax increase. The media and left will rejoice over raising taxes and say all republican governors should be like Christie.

Obama and the Obamunists are smug because they´re not too terribly interested in reality. After all, the world owes them a livin´. And like the fabled grasshopper, not the industrious ant, they´re going to continue fiddling until winter comes and freezes them to death. Winter´s almost here.

Heres the nasty little truth about evolution.

The VAST majority of mutastions are either inconsequential, or fatal. "perfection" is only reached after a lot af "imperfection" dies out.

And the other little truth, there is no perfection, evolution whether Natural or societal is a response to change. Those who cannot adapt die out.Mammoths couldn´t adapt to a warming world (Neandertals either). Communist countries could not adapt to the information revolution. Most freed colonies could not adapt to self rule. The list is endless.

Republicans better learn to adapt to the changing AMerican landscape as well.

Evolution is inevitable, no one is exempt.

on Drudge today it showed a picture of the Chinese leader with the caption ´top commie´ . There was a picture of obama close by. The captions should have been the same. Frank M. Davis would be so proud to watch scores of ´educated´ vote for communism couched as ´fairness´. Fair in communist ussr in the 60´s meant everyone but the ´leaders´ had nothing but cold and starvation and no hope. We are moving ´forward´ rapidly to that conclusion. Only a true hatred filled unAmerican like obama could reilsh that conclusion for what has been the greatest democracy on earth. those who relish destruction will reap the same whether they have the sense to see it or not.

#3, the ´grasshopper and the aunt´ analogy is quite good.
However, I don´t think these particular ants will be so willing to rescue these particular grasshoppers.

And speaking of brilliant analogies, I love the caption to today´s photo, the "Trylon and Perisphere".
Had to look it up because I just knew it would be something brilliant, and it was.
They were two structures created for the 1939 New York Worlds Fair.

if leftists think evolution is so great, why aren´t they in favor of man made climate change? by their reckoning, it would be a perfect example of Darwinism. but, why ask why about anything any one of them thinks? They don´t think.

White House, Cabinet Room

OBAMA: You folks represent the first entirely recessed Cabinet in American history. Do me proud. Let´s go round the table. HHS?
MICHAEL MOORE: Amend ObamaCare to include lesser beings, sir.
OBAMA: No. First, the remaining mammalians; then, things with legs; finally, air breathers. Treasury?
PAUL KRUGMAN: Stimulus IV should tip the worldwide economy into depression within a year, sir.
OBAMA: Good. That gets us closer to a one-world government. OMB?
BERNIE MADOFF: [videoconferencing from prison] Economies are annoyingly resilient, sir.
OBAMA: Agreed. Allred, have DOJ lawyers discover justification for footing a European bailout. We’ll overwhelm their systems with worthless dollars. CIA?
MATT DAMON: al-Zawaheri´s on board, sir. We´ll get non-specific advance notice of an atrocity if we grant him U. S. citizenship and a drone exemption.
OBAMA: Go for it. NSA, how’d it work out with Chavez?
SEAN PENN: He’s adopted me, sir.
OBAMA: Congratulations, Chico. Transportation?
AL GORE: Phase out private ownership of vehicles by the end of your third term, sir. At that point, traveling by high-speed rail—-whether or not it exists-—becomes compulsory.
OBAMA: Tap the Amish for additional public transport ideas. Defense?
ADAM BALDWIN: Devote half the budget to weapons procurement, sir.
OBAMA: Alec, this doesn’t sound like you. We can’t . . . wha? Oh Good Lord, I picked the wrong Baldwin! Oh, well. State?
YOKO ONO: Divvy up our nukes to the world, sir. We can only negotiate when everyone starts from a position of strength.
OBAMA: Make it so, Sudoko. Homeland Security?
SHEILA JACKSON LEE: [interrupting cell phone conversation] What?

Wicked, #9. But Sheila Jackson-Lee´s talents are wasted if not heading up a newly combined NASA/Dept of Education.

And what of FEMA and the sports industry? Those must be combined and elevated to Cabinet status - headed by either Ron Artest or Malik Zulu Shabazz.

Somehow, a new department should be created for Jay-Z. Ministry of Level Playing Fields and Equal Outcomes perhaps. Or maybe Boundaries of Good Taste Dept.

#9 Excellent. It appears your hiatus payed off handsome dividends (if that term is still relevent in the Obamanation). I sure hope this is one scenario of yours that does not come to pass.

At least my lib neighbor has had the good taste to not even mention the election. I think she senses my seething anger and disgust.

The campaign theme, "Forward" can be found in the communist manifesto, Uncle Alinsky used to brainwash his followers. Our IMPOSTER in the Oval Office was born in Kenya to a Muslim/Communist father and a Communist mother. Barack Hussein Mohammad Soetoro Obama will use his second term to continue his quest toward turning the USA into a Communist satellite/third world country.When he finishes his secone term, We, The People can then file charges against him and Pelosi for their collusion, as she knew when she approved his fake Hawaiian birth certificate it has been ´manufactured´. They both deserve looooong term jail time to answer for their crime of pulling the largest scam against the USA and for degrading the office of president. We did NOT get the Change we were promised, all we got was an ingnorant black, Kenyan who HATES EVERYTHING America, and intends on destroying OUR GREAT nation as we know it, NOT what he thinks it should be. Impeachment would be too good for this FAUX president and his entire corrupt administration, and his czars.

What made Nevada rancher fight the feds?

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

The year that we were married, my husband and I were given a truly wonderful gift: a honeymoon safari to southern Africa. It was an amazing experience. We now have all the magical memories that one would hope to bring home from a safari: the fresh lion kill, the mother elephant tenderly caressing her baby, the warthog crashing through the undergrowth with a leopard in hot pursuit. I could go on (and on and on), but nothing’s more pretentious than regaling people with tales of your honeymoon safari, so I’ll just reiterate once more: completely fabulous. You meet a lot of

A thief was forced to stop the car he had stolen minutes before and release the children in the back seat after the a pair of 7-year-old twins attacked the driver with a toy snake. The car was taken from the home of Lucia Lozada in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday as the mother of the twin boys and a 1-year-old buckled in the back seat stood just a few feet from the vehicle.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

Matt Bevin, who is running against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary, has come out with a new ad defending his claimed affiliation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bevin tries to sidestep the MIT controversy in his latest ad by claiming that he never portrayed himself as a graduate of the prestigious school. “I’m a small-business owner, I’ve not had a resume in over 20 years. I’ve never claimed on a resume or to anyone ever that I’m a graduate of MIT. This is a lie made up by Mitch McConnell to distract you from

When Oprah Winfrey served on a Chicago jury in 2004, she couldn’t go to the bathroom attached to the jury room unless her fellow jurors sang to drown out the noise. One of the songs they sang was Kumbaya. When Alexis Sanchez used the bathroom in her college dorm, she brought her iPod with her. “I would blast it,” she says. “I would play ´D. A. N. C.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
